The many lives of our vintage trailer!

I don't know if you remember, but we used to have a vintage trailer parked on our property upstate.

The Trailer originally belonged to John's parents, and they used it for many years, touring around the United States with little John in tow. About 18 years later, it became my college graduation project, renovated to function as a guest house for John's parents' country house; and then about 8 years after that, it came back to me again, to serve as our "guest cottage" at Fox Ridge. Until about one month ago., when we started getting the house ready to sell. One of the first things we did was list the trailer on Craig's List, thinking that having a wayward trailer parked on our lawn was a little more "po-dunk" than "bucolic", and not really an asset for the sale.

Luckily, it was a super cute trailer, so it sold in about 10 minutes to some lovely folks who are now in the process of bringing it back to life, again, and are documenting the process on a blog called "Maude In The Making".

Check out the blog and follow along to see how the next phase of The Trailer's life unfolds...

  1. We are so grateful to you and John and his family for giving her life and new life and for sharing her history with us. We can't wait to see how she unfolds either! Stay tuned... Amy and Maya
